Les Arcs – four French ski resorts for varied skiing pleasures

Les Arcs is not one resort but actually made up of four, traffic-free, modern resorts each with its own personality: Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950 and finally Arc 2000. The numbers in the village names relate to their altitude in metres – more or less – Arc 2000 is actually at 2100 metres or an altitude of 6890 feet. Considered a friendly resort, it is an ideal holiday destination for families with children. The terrain is notably varied with a good combination of high, open, guaranteed snow-covered slopes and lower woodland runs. There are “ski tranquille” beginner zones in the lower three Arcs resorts and challenging on and off-piste skiing for experts and plenty for all intermediate abilities. Les Arcs has been a hot spot for boarders since the sport was introduced in the early 1980’s and it offers excellent freeriding including steeps, gullies, trees, natural jibs and hits. And there are plenty of wide-open rolling slopes for intermediate and beginners too. And the “Apocalypse” terrain park is excellent. Further, the four Les Arcs resorts along with the La Plagne resorts and Peisey-Vallandry make up Paradiski, an enormous and amazingly diverse ski area, one of the largest in Europe. Fast lifts link all the mountains so skiers can make the most of a skiing holiday.

Beyond the skiing, Les Arcs also offers different ways to enjoy the mountain: an igloo village, dog sledding, the Rodeo Park – a 2-mile sled course of banked turns to enjoy with family and friends, the waterslide, snowshoeing, the natural skating rink, sightseeing tours or a village of Mongolian yurts to visit at nightfall for a typical, Savoy region meal.
